Updates - The Broket Archive

What’s new at TBA?

The Broket Archive (TBA) is continually changing. Major changes have occurred each year since the launch in 2004. Examples are the discovery of the Will in England of John Brockett who married Mary Blackwell and the DNA project. These are now part and parcel of this major 2018 revision of the site. We’re a small team working hard in the background doing research, so new developments, major discoveries, and content changes are ongoing and updates are constantly being included. We try to provide the most current and accurate information available.

Going forward, we will only record only substantial changes here. But day-to-day and week-to-week changes are happening all the time too. Some may be especially pertinent to you. You can always see if changes have occurred in the pages you view by checking the page update stamp at the bottom right of each page. Please let us know how this system works for you. Suggestions are appreciated.
